Re: Wipers

Yes, Bosch aerotwin retrofit. Just fitted a new pair yesterday. The old set lasted pretty well (about 2 years I think). They make less wind noise than conventional wipers too.

The fitting method is the same for both arms. Very simple to fit. What's causing the problem?

I think Carl's referring to the little 'hook' fitting on the driver's side arm, it stops the blade twisting on the up-stroke, preventing the l/h end from catching on the other blade.

I would think the 'Aero' blades are stiff enough not to need it.


Are those Aero/Flat blades really worth their extortionate price?
I pay a couple of quid twice a year to replace just the rubbers on mine.
The others would have to last about 8-10 years to be the same value . . .

Re: Wipers

I like them. 18/pair, delivered. They wipe evenly across the entire blade length, don't judder, make less wind noise on the motorway and don't lift at speed. The fork/hook on the drivers side wiper arm sits astride the spine of the aero wiper a treat, holding the blade in place.

If you're running your Multi on a shoestring, they're a needless extravagance. I drive a cheap car and spend some of what I save in maintaining well. You pays your money, you takes your choice.
